Olsen remains on the TE1 radar, but faces a Lions opponent that was 25th against fantasy tight ends in the opener.
Gates looked young and fresh against the Cardinals and will have TE2 value against the tough Seahawks D.
  
James Hatfield
Hatty Waiver Wire Guru
He will have a very solid outing on Sunday
 
  
Jon Collins

Olsen's Week 1 target load suggests big things to come in an offense bereft of talent on the outside.
 
  
Staff Rankings

Olsen caught eight passes (best on the team) on 11 targets for 83 yards and a score. He was definitely the top option in the passing game plan due to his past experience in the offense and steadiness of his game. I believe that this will continue this week, no matter who the quarterback is in week two.
Gates caught six passes on 10 targets for 81 yards and silenced the doubters that questioned his ability to maintain his place in the passing game ahead of the promising Ladarius Green. The Seahawks are a tough draw, but it seems that Rivers will continue to rely on the reliable tight end for a bunch of catches.
